I’ve embarked on a new adventure! Going back to school at 40 years old isn’t all THAT scary, especially when it’s to study the thing you love best… FOOD 🙂
A little over a week ago I began the Culinary Arts Program at UVU and so far it’s been a really great experience.
First off, we aren’t allowed to wear any make-up at all! Next, no fingernail polish, or acrylic fingernails or eyelash extensions or earrings, etc., etc… we are all Natural 🙂
Which makes it really easy to get out the door in the mornings.
The pictures above are of me (top center) and some of my fellow classmates, we are all in Chef John’s Cooking Skills class together.
Yesterday, we went to an event on the main campus for Dean’s Day. My cooking friends were kind enough to pose so I could share some photos with you!
At the event our class prepared and sampled Pulled Pork Sliders with Slaw AND they were a yummy big hit…
Each class in the Culinary Arts program brought samples to share…
AND Chef Franz demonstrated this awesome fish ice sculpture…
Oh, here’s one last photo that just couldn’t be missed 🙂
Lovin’ us some Doctor! Dr. Pepper that is…
(I’m on the right)
We’ve been learning all kinds of knife skills and sauces and all that too BUT, I’ll save that to share with you in next weeks post!
Thanks for joining me on My Culinary School Adventure…
Happy Thursday and Happy Cooking

Congratulations — how fun! I totally relate — at 46 I’m finally enrolled in a 6 month long culinary program in SF on the 30th of this month. I’m beyond excited!
You’re class sounds so fun… I’m sure it’ll be super condensed to get you through it in 6 months is amazing!! That’s so great 🙂 I’ve sure loved the first couple of weeks of my program- learning a ton! xoxo~ Ruthie
